Community sports roundup: Pair of former E-W runners honored

Miller Haller and Yukino Parle, both of Boise State, earned 1st-team All-Mountain West recognition.

A pair of Edmonds-Woodway High School graduates proved they are among the best cross country runners the Mountain West Conference has to offer.

Miler Haller and Yukino Parle, who both run for Boise State University, earned first-team all-conference honors at the Mountain West Championships held Friday in Logan, Utah.

Haller, a senior, placed seventh in the men’s race, completing the 8-kilometer course in a time of 23 minutes, 25.0 seconds. It was the second time Haller earned first-team all-conference honors, as he also accomplished the feat in 2017.

Parle, a sophomore, placed seventh in the women’s race, finishing the 6-kilometer course in a time of 20 minutes, 22.7 seconds.

The top 15 finishers in each race earned first-team honors.

Roe was OSU’s fourth scorer, completing the 6-kilometer race in 21:13.2. She missed out on making the All-Big 12 team by one place.
